Day 4: Cairo - Sharm - Dahab Breakfast will be at the hotel. Transfer to Cairo airport for departure to Sharm El Sheikh City. Upon arrival Sharm airport, there will be meeting and assisting by our representative. And then, we will drive for about 01 hour to Dahab City. Dahab means 'gold' in Arabic. In Sinai it means golden sands, turquoise sea and off-beat cafe life. It is a focus of tourism development, with swaying palms, fine sand and wonderful snorkeling opportunities. About 5 miles from town is the famous Blue Hole, for diving. Towards the Israeli border is the Island of Coral, where the Crusaders built a fort. The remains can still be seen. There are many reefs immediately adjacent to the waterfront hotels, so scuba diving and snorkeling are also very popular sports, especially considering the nearby Blue Hole. Check in at the hotel. Then we will take the first dive at Lighthouse Reef, situated in the bay of Dahab and offers various depths. It has large sandy slopes beside a rocky wall, gorgeously colored corals, and boasts abundant marine life, such as sleeping parrot fish and Spanish dancers. The second dive will be at The Canyon, which is a deep wide ravine in the ocean floor. Entering at the fish bowl, which is an enclosed circular cavern full of small gold fish or glassfish, the depths slope from 15 meters to one exit at 30 meters, and another at 52 meters. Dinner and overnight will be at the hotel in Dahab Day 5: Dahab Breakfast will be at the hotel. Today we will try out The Blue Hole, which is thought to be one of the top world-class dive sites. It is a hole in the reef about 55 meters wide and its max depth is 102 meters. This site offers dives to 30 meters and features a stunning archway, which leads into the bottomless open sea at 54 meters, for advanced divers. The next dive will be at The Caves, located south of Dahab, is a slightly misleading name, as the 'Cave' is in fact more of a large overhang. This is still, however, a good dive site for the unusual rock formations and variety of sealife. The dive starts by following the gentle sloping drop-off following the shore where the sandy bed provides a home for garden eels, pipefish and wrasse, which dive into the sand as you approach. The pinnacles provide an interesting site with sealife including turtles, morays, lionfish and Napoleon wrasse. The dive finishes up in the caves, which provide shelter for several dozing puffers. And then we will go on to Gabr El Bent to enjoy diving among virgin reefs and rich marine life. This site offers wall diving and gentle sandy slopes with coral outcrops. Dinner and overnight will be at the hotel Full list of Egypt tours: http://www.etltravel.com/Egypt_tours.html =================================== Contact us: www.etltravel.com www.egypttravellink.com
